Retiring from any sort of emergency responder or military service career is a challenging experience. Embedded in the transition to civilian life is an adjustment not only to the difficult loss of a strong teamwork environment, but also the adjustment away from a perso...

For those of you who have followed Nalani’s story, you know that I started the dream of rescuing horses with almost no experience and knowledge - just a driving NEED to do SOMEthing after I learned about the side of the horse world most people aren’t aware of; the tens...

We have been busy! I declared myself healthy enough to return to work full time in April, and the first order of business was to RESCUE A HORSE!! We planned a trip to New Holland, PA to hit the auction where many Amish horses (among others) are dumped in bad shape and...
